The Dog Star: Running After Business

The Dog Star: Running After Business

(The Dog Star is a symbol of power, will, and steadfastness of purpose, and exemplifies the One who has succeeded in bridging the lower and higher consciousness. —Astrological Definition)

All of my dogs over the years, different breeds and mixtures, male and female, large and small, have shared a common trait: They move quickly. Dogs rarely merely walk (unless they’re tethered to a human being who always simply walks). They trot as a normal pace, but will often run, and frequently sprint. Moving to a new room is a trot, the anticipation of going for a ride creates a run, and a squirrel requires a sprint.

I don’t see many people trot to make referral calls or write a blog entry, or run to get into a buyer’s office, or sprint to make a speech or run a meeting. They’re much more deliberate, much slower, sometimes barely moving. It’s like they’re the ones on the leash.
